Choosing The Perfect Dining Room Chandeliers

Choosing your dining room chandelier can be a difficult task, but we're here to make it easier for you!

First of all, there are several factors you'll have to consider in order to ensure that your choice will complement your space, style and needs. 

Take a look at these quick tips to purchase the best chandelier for your ambient:

  1. Make sure to measure your space

Consider the size of your dining room and the ceiling height. All of which will make sure that the chandelier is appropriate for your room. 

Generally speaking, the diameter of the chandelier in inches should be roughly equal to the sum of the room's length and width in feet. 

  1. What's your style and your aesthetic?

What materials and finishes are you looking for? Metal, glass, crystal, wood? Pick one that harmonizes with your furniture and the already existing finishes in your dining room. 

Here's some options for you to choose from:

  1. How many lights do you want in your dining room chandelier?

Our chandelier options come with a variety of lights. With that being said, you should consider how much light you actually need in your dining area. Smaller chandeliers have fewer lights, and you have to be sure that the chandelier will elevate your space and provide sufficient illumination.

Dimming and light control will also affect the mood you want to set to your ambiance, which means that it is better to choose an option where you can adjust the lighting level.

  1. Ceiling Height

The height of your ceiling will affect the chandelier's design and placement. For higher ceilings, a multi-tiered chandelier or fixtures with adjustable chains or rods. For a lower ceiling, a flush or semi-flush mount chandelier is better! Moreover, you should also consider the table. A perfect chandelier is centered over the dining table, so you'll need to make sure the size and shape of the chandelier complements the table. It should have a balance, which means that it shouldn't be too small or too large compared to the table's dimensions.

  1. Installation

No one wants to spend lots of time installing a chandelier, so make sure you choose a simple option or if you're not comfortable with DIY installations, you might need to hire a professional. 

  1. Inspiration

There's plenty of interior design magazines, platforms like Pinterest and home decor websites to gather inspiration. From this point, you can get a pretty good idea about how  different chandeliers look in different settings. This will also help you choose the overall style of your dining room. Modern, traditional, rustic, minimalist or else?
